JoCoPETS is a voucher-based program that reduces the cost to get your cats and dogs spayed or neutered. The owner is responsible for the co-payment of $50.00 for cats or dogs with the balance covered through grants and donations. There are no financial or geographical restrictions.
Please note: We are currently receiving many requests for assistance, and we will honor them as long as there are funds. It may take 7-10 days for you to get a reply. Also, the vet is backed up so it may take 4-6 weeks to get an appointment.
How do I apply for the JoCoPETS program?
The downloaded application form, once filled in, can be emailed to spayneuter@JCAPL.org. You can also mail it to JCAPL – JoCoPETS, PO BOX 607 Smithfield, NC 27577. Please allow 5 business days for an online application; mailed applications will take longer. If you have not gotten a response within a week, please check your spam folder.
What Else Should I Know?
- All spay/neuter procedures are performed at Quality Care Animal Hospital at Four Oaks.
- The co-payment is due on the morning of surgery and includes rabies vaccination.
- Pets that do not bring proof of current rabies vaccination will be required to receive a one-year rabies vaccination. Pets that are current and bring proof of previous vaccination will receive a three-year vaccine.
- Pets must be deemed healthy enough for the procedure by the participating veterinarian, and extra charges apply for aged, overweight, in heat, pregnant or lactating females and cryptorchid males.
